“Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doingsome have unwittingly entertained angels” (Heb. 13:2). Every churchshould cultivate a spirit of hospitality, an essential element of Christian life and experience. Nothing is so deadening to the spiritual life of a church as a cold, formal atmosphere that drives out hospitality and Christian fellowship. Especially selected greeters should cordially welcome visitors, who also may be welcomed at the time of the worship service.
